Sometimes, All It Takes Is A Cup Of Coffee
This is the story of a very average woman who discovered she could be a total badass.
If you search the term ‘life changing’ on Amazon, you’ll get over 10,000 results: most of them are books. Other items that are purportedly life-changing include spendy cosmetics, water filters, and a certain type of dog food.
Which begs the question: if it’s so easy to change your life, how come so many people still live a shitty existence, unaware of the unlimited options that, for just a few dollars, will do the job that no therapist managed to do?
My name is Haleli Smadar. Seventeen years ago, I was married (I’m not anymore); had two sweet toddlers (I now have three children, and none of them are toddlers anymore!); a house in the suburbs; two cars; a dog, and a very normal life in Israel (as you’ve probably guessed, I don’t have any of these anymore…).
One morning, I was sitting in my garden, enjoying my daily ‘me time’ cup of coffee. The kids were at day-care, my husband was at work. It was peaceful, quiet, and sunny. Just me and a huge old olive tree. Nothing out of the ordinary.
But this day was not like every other day.
By the time I finished my coffee, my life had changed, and would never be the same. And not because I had done an Amazon search (I didn’t even know what it was, back then). I didn’t read any self-help books, and I certainly didn’t buy any new cosmetics or dog food.
For me, all it took was one cup of coffee.
I was considered something of a trailblazer when I left my life in Israel behind. I was interviewed for TV, radio, newspapers and magazines. Many other Israelis contacted me to say they dreamed of doing the same thing.
Now, for the first time, I am telling my story in English.
So you can keep reading about my new novel- “Under a different sky“, get some inside gossip on “behind the scenes” or subscribe for some free, out of this world inspiration boost
I look forward to reading your book but find it odd that I have to submit my email again after I already subscribed.
Thank you :-). There is absolutely no reason to subscribe again. you can purchase the book directly through Amazon: https://amzn.to/3faVGMG

I have just glimpsed your recent offering and would like to read more of your story now. Your life sounds inspired and I am curious about it. Sounds like you beat some odds and your will, I am sure had something to do with it.
Thank you for sharing your life

Get an idea of where I would wish to go and then just do it-that way has allowed me enormous freedom to travel to many countries!
Thank you so much Pamela.
